theme of mitt romney's foreign policy policy? >> well, i think what's fascinating about this speech, charlie, is that mitt romney has identified some of the weakest points in the obama approach to the world. and one of the weak zest that many who have been involved in the revolutions in the arab world wonder where america is. i think that the other side of the speech, on which it was weaker, is that he has not identified terribly well what he would do differently. from those clips you had a few points we can raise. he said that the syrians should be armed but he stopped short of saying that we should arm the syrians. in fact, that hasn't been the position he's taken. he has said that iran should be convinced by america's actions not its words that the u.s. is serious about keeping it from getting a nuclear weapon and he said, importantly, a nuclear weapons capability, that's a difference from president obama. >> rose: right. >> but he never mentioned those many things that president obama has done that i think the iranians are feeling. one of them is the strongest sanction it is u.s
